As technological advancement is rapidly evolving modern warfare, military supply chains are becoming more dynamic and complex with high vulnerability to unexpected disruptions. To increase their overall resilience against such unexpected disruptions, traditional approaches are no longer sufficient. To date, research on supply chain resilience has mainly focused on reactive responses and recovery strategies (post-disruption). Hence, the research gap addressed in this paper is that of identifying new and proactive strategies to enable pre-emptive resilience in military supply chains (pre-disruption). In this paper, the authors first provide a critical review of the pertinent literature and research conducted over the past 12 years. Following on from there, they identify new research directions for enabling pre-emptive resilience to aid military logistic planners in monitoring supply chains and strategic decision-making to maintain their resilience.
